A picture is made up of a thousand stories

tossdown comes to Canada as an effort to build a Halal Restaurant guide for the Muslim Community in North America.

But how did it all began?

You have a product that you have been working on for almost a decade now, you think its good enough to build a restaurant database for any city and give its users the freedom to search restaurants based on their choices. It is not that simple. Heres how:

tossdown at Muslim Fest 2016 - Mississauga Canada

tossdown at Muslim Fest 2016 – Mississauga Canada

Most of you would see this picture as a display of marketing effort by tossdown at a certain exhibition (in this case it was Muslim Fest – one of the biggest Muslim Festivals in Canada) to create market awareness. Its empty for now, with a facade of marketing messages.

But for us this is a very emotional site. In this empty static picture, we see a lot of bustle, a lot going on, we see passion, love, loss, adversity and the struggle we had to go through to come to this. The risks that were taken were unimaginable for us and we always thought there was a greater power that was always picking us up when were on the verge.

Ask me, this is a ‘emotional tearing’ moment for us but we wont cry because its not over yet plus we dont have any time to.

This is the beginning and as they say ‘All great things come after adversity’. March on team tossdown!

Thank you Muslim Fest for giving us the opportunity to display a little of what we know so far.

Regards,

Team tossdown

 

Loca – Mexican Restaurant Relocates to a new location

Loca – as the name implies is the mexican restaurant thats very dear to the few people that understand the awesomeness of ‘Mexican Cuisine’. It has been there for time now with its prim and proper space just across the road from the infamous Sukh Chain health club in gulberg and now its relocating near the food hub of lahore – MM ALAM road just near the newly opened Burger King.

On a global scale, we Pakistanis are compared to Mexicans and as Pakistanis, Mexican food is the closest you can get to our desi food. Its because most of the mexican food is around kidney beans (lobia as we call it in our local language), rice, bread (similar to our roti) and a lot of spices. One of our global desi favourites is the burrito, its something new to our Pakistani market but Loca is doing all that for us. Its slowly picking up with the tastes buds and Loca not only has good mexican food but also some great desserts, and yes its a nice place to hang out. If you havent been there, we recommend you must!

Burger King finally comes to Lahore

The famous King comes town. It could be a little heart breaking for the Lahoris that the King visited them last although they take pride in being the food Capital of Pakistan and most of the food chains when they come to Pakistan, start off with lahore. Nonetheless, I guess it was a good wait and Mcdonalds has its rival here in Lahore as well.

With the burger trend in Lahore on its rise with amazing local chains keeping up a good fight, its going to be a some adventure for Burger King to sustain once the welcome fireworks go silent.

But at the same time, we must not forget Burger King is one of the biggest Burger chains in the world and Lahore seems to be complete with its share of the Kings Meal.

Fat Burger Lahore – mixed reviews on tossdown

Fat burger is a fast food chain from Beverly Hills, California operating in a dozen countries across the globe. However, anything that comes to lahore is remotely close to being edible gets its due attention. ‘Ek daffa tu zaroor’ (once atleast)

McDonald’s Corporation (NYSEMCD) is the world’s largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries.[3][4] Headquartered in the United States, the company began in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald; in 1948 they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand using production line principles. Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955. He subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers and oversaw its worldwide growth.[5]

tossdown Ramadan Restaurant Guide tops all Major Apps on the App Store

tossdown Ramadan Restaurant Guide launched a couple of months ago has just topped all Major Apps such as Facebook, Angry Bird, Twitter etc and is now on #56 on the Local App Store and the 56th most downloaded app and 2nd most downloaded app in Pakistan in the ‘Lifestyle’ Category.

This is a tipping point for us a team who have struggled for a break through for years, since 2008 where people would just rid the idea of a dine out website or an app just about recently. Well interestingly as recently as just last month.

Lets all wish and pray this is a launching pad for our idea.
